Mrs. England being moderator. Mistris Parliament, that late lay in, invites you now unto her gossipping; and as the order is unto this day, for what you eate, shee'l make you roundly pay; pray Commons eat; her's chat and laughter, and committee-fruit in dishes after: fall too and welcome; I have still in store to prove her bawd, murderer, witch, and whore. Her tryall's past; shee is condem'd to die, her execution day drawes nie; come help to guard her to the gallow-tree, England is freed of all her miserie.
